Just a beautiful city area and atmosphere. I recommend visiting several times, especially during lunch and at some point, at dark when the beautiful restaurants on the canal are open and the lights are colourful.

There is a children's playground between one of the canals and several places worthwhile to have a casual picnic.

Look at the photos! This is an absolutely wonderful location to travel through, on foot, via canal, bicycle or any other mode. The ambience, architecture, flowers, river, restaurants, pubs and shops is simply fantastic, especially when the sun is shining.

The place just makes you want to linger and take the atmosphere in completely especially when downing one of the tastiest beers I have ever had...in Alsace? How can that be? I was amazed by an amber beer called "Fischer" Dorelei. Superb! The entire area sets you back several hundred years in time at that is just wonderful.
I highly recommend this area to any traveler in the Alsace region.

Even in the depths of Winter there were plenty of people wandering around the streets and passages of La Petit France, so named when the city was part of Germany. Many of the buildings on the river front still retain the open upper storey where leather was dried. Our informal guide pointed out the different architectural periods and historical know how. I can imagine that in Summer this is overrun with tourists, we prefer the quiet of Winter if possible.

During our Viking River Cruise’ “Rhine Getaway” journey, we visited the historic Cathedral of Our Lady of Strasbourg. After our cathedral visit, we went through narrow streets with intriguing buildings, ending up in beautiful La Petite France, a historic quarter of the city. La Petite France was located at the western end of Grande Île (Big Island) which was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The area with many restaurants and shops was festive and vibrant with many visitors. We walked through the streets and crossed the bridges over the canal. The view of the canal and surrounding charming buildings were fascinating. We also saw canal tour boats packed with cheerful tourists passing by. La Petite France is a must visit attraction of Strasbourg.

Cobbled streets  with the traditional timber houses, winding streets and waterways; everything was just so very beautiful.

There are many cosy cafes and bakeries to satiate your hunger. Cathedral is beautiful. Take time to admire the historical buildings. A MUST VISIT.

A wonderful little place, it's quaint, it's scenic and you can feel the cultural influence which makes Strasbourg so interesting. It's lovely to have a walk around petite France and look at the boats passing by on the river. In summer you can enjoy having a drink at one of the restaurant and café terrasses.

Petite France is a historic quarter of the city of Strasbourg in eastern France. It is located at the western end of the Grande Île, which contains the historical centre of the city. The name Petite-France ("Little France") was not given for patriotic or architectural reasons. It comes from the "hospice of the syphilitic" (Hospice des Vérolés, in French), which was built in the late fifteenth century on this island, to cure persons with syphilis, then called Franzosenkrankheit ("French disease") in German.This is the most picturesque district of old Strasbourg. Fishermen, millers and tanners once lived and worked in this part of town where the streets have been built level with the waterways. Nice atmosphere with French and German influence.

Very picturesque part of Strasbourg. Combination of water and old well kept buildings is always nice. Despite this being February and grey our walk through the old part of the city was most enjoyable. I am sure it is even nicer and more beautiful in the summer or during the Christmas market. That is to be found out hopefully.

We were staying in the Grand Rue, so on the edge of Petite France, and took the ooportunity to stroll around the area every day of our short break. It is very photogenic, with the traditional timber frame houses, winding streets and waterways, remnants of the old mills that used to stand here. It takes only a short time to walk around the whole of this area but as part of the whole Strasbourg experience it is very enjoyable

Strasbourg's historic district La Petite France is gorgeous, complete with canals, bridges and half-timbered architecture.Just what you would expect to see in a "Once Upon A Time" fairy tale. Don't miss this area when in Strasbourg.
